Committee 47-48. Jubilee Spike Committee. He spent 1943 in the Army in N.Z.

He thinks the present Building Appeal Committee of ex-students and sympathizers should be the best means of raising a lot of money quickly, but if it is unable to function it should be replaced by a student committee. This money must be raised within a year. He first suggested the idea of an N.Z.U.S.A. Student Congress, and hopes to see it become a yearly event. He thinks the jubilee must be made a means of consolidating popular opinion in favour of V.U.C.

He will support any move to make Victoria a more jubilant, healthy, intellectual, sporting, comfortable, entertaining and popular institution.
